Typically, control rooms are defined as a place where any monitoring or analysing of an organisation’s business practices are carried out. This can be something as simple as a CCTV monitoring point set up in a manager’s office or a large space with multiple monitoring stations – like an incident room.
Either way, control rooms are primarily designed to ensure that any problems or incidents that might otherwise impact on the business or event, are spotted and dealt with quickly. With this in mind, why would you need a security control room operator? More importantly, how can they benefit your business further?
Let’s take a closer look…
A different focus
By their very name, security control room operators originate from a security background, so naturally, they come with a different focus. In other words, their focus or emphasis is more about security and protection. By having this different approach it allows the monitoring team to better concentrate their efforts on ensuring their business or event runs smoothly. Meanwhile and likewise, the security control room operator can do their job of ensuring that any breaches in security won’t compromise the company or event.
Their duties may include:
- Analysing activity on perimeters, car parks or entrances – looking for any weak spots or potential problem areas
- Seeking out anomalous activity which may be indicative of a security breach
- Analysing any potential security breaches and reporting any incidents immediately to response teams
- Making suggestions as to where security improvements can be made and how
These are factors that a non-security trained individual might not pick up on.
Aside from having a dual approach to monitoring, there is another benefit to choosing a security control room operator….
Round the clock monitoring
Security control room operators can also provide round the clock monitoring when necessary. That’s 24 hours a day 7 days a week! By utilising continuous activity monitoring, security personnel have the ability to improve incident detection that may have otherwise been missed by normal-working-hours monitoring only. This can be carried out either remotely using sophisticated equipment, or on the premises.
So why would you invest in 24/7 monitoring?
To put it simply, round-the-clock monitoring gives businesses a bigger advantage to defend against incidents like intrusions, vandalism, and theft (which usually occurs outside standard working hours) that may otherwise cost organisations hundreds of thousands of dollars per year.
So now you know how a security control room operator can help…
